Houston – Transwestern Real Estate Services (TRE) announces it has developed an interactive and customizable workbook to prepare office buildings for increased occupancy following the widespread closure of businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic. Transwestern’s Workplace Readiness Workbook provides detailed guidance including the following:

  • Cleaning and sanitation strategies
  • Social distancing guidance
  • Operational and mechanical considerations
  • Preparing for increased tenant occupancy
  • Responsible operating expense strategies
  • Stakeholder communication

Transwestern is committed to providing clients with practical, realistic guidance that is customized to specifically fit the needs of each individual asset. As such, the workbook is designed to be both interactive and flexible to evolve as our environment changes. This workbook will also support our property management teams to engage closely with ownership and asset managers to determine the best solutions regarding investments, operational changes and cultural shifts.

As commercial real estate continues to evolve in the midst of the coronavirus crisis, the Transwestern workbook will be refined and supplemented to empower property management teams to effectively facilitate conversations about each step of the recovery.

The workbook is part of a multi-faceted approach to reopening buildings, drawing perspective from all service lines and considering the varied mitigation efforts and government responses across the country. These efforts are overseen by a companywide taskforce, with Managing Directors Katie Sakach and Brett Williams spearheading the Asset Services installment. Visit the Transwestern website for more information on our response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
